    Hey guys,

    I have been lurking for a while on this forum, I like photography but am by no mean an amateur, more like a pre-amateur if that is even a word...just purchased a G6 a couple weeks ago and when shooting I cannot access the ISO and other buttons from the "cross" on the camera....all it does is move my focus box, which is nice but i would like to change my ISO and my time-release shutter on the fly...
    The answer to this question is probably super stupid and I apologize in advance for the rookie question!
    thanks

    From the Custom Menu, select Direct Focus Area, and turn it off. That changes the 4 way controller to move the focus area instead of the other functions.
